Mouton Cadet Bordeaux

Bordeaux Blend

Description: Following a poor vintage in 1927, Baron Philippe de Rothschild created the second wine label Carruades de Mouton, though this was not viewed as a success. After the acclaimed vintages of 1928 and 1929, the vintage of 1930 and the following two harvests were dire,and the wine de Rothschild felt was not worthy of the Mouton-Rothschild name was this time named Mouton Cadet. "Cadet" refers to de Rothschild place as cadet, the youngest son of the family. Mouton Cadet was marketed significantly throughout the 50s and 60s, placing the brand in the Uk and U.s. In the 70s, a white wine was added to the label, expanding the brand's concept, which resulted in 1975 sales of more than 3 million bottles worldwide. Philippe de Rothschild died in 1988 and control of the business passed on to his daughter Philippine de Rothschild. Food pairing Serve at room temperature with beef or lamb, cheeses, and nuts. Pairs equally well with lighter fare such as herb-roasted chicken.
